Finished project(s) – all the sample shorties (ankle socks)

Hooray! The new Travelknitter colourway is out in the public domain and now you can all see that it is a doozy! Isn’t it gorgeous? The colourway is called Hogmanay and Larissa has developed it especially for this year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival. But the really good news is that she’s adding it to her stable…

The beginnings of a new design

I’ve had this idea mooching about on the fringes of my thoughts for a while now (inspired by quite a lot of other patterns which are almost but not quite something that I would actually wear). Some kind of scarf or cowl which uses exactly the same amount of two fingering weight yarns. Garter stitch…

Once upon a sock in March 18 – sooo many ankle socks

I have been knitting my little socks off this month (DID YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE, KIDS) – once the Borage socks were done it has all been about getting those two pairs of ankle socks knitted up as samples in time for Travelknitter to take to Edinburgh later this month. And… I am…

Finished project – Borage socks

I’ve been so immersed in my sample knitting for travelknitter (latest: three socks down and fourth one on the needles) that I’d almost forgotten about my swiftly finished Borage socks. Here they are, though – the sun in my Mum’s lounge was killer this afternoon and I couldn’t miss the chance to take some shots….

Freedom and cables – free hat pattern

It might still be bloody cold, but NEVER FEAR. This easy hat with dense squishy cables will knit up quickly and keep your ears warm all the way through the cold months until Spring finally pitches up. If you’re an experienced knitter then you’ll knit this up in no time, and if you’re a beginner…

Never not socking

You GUYS, there have been some very exciting sock developments chez felinity in the last week. Firstly, I’ve finished the Borage socks (proper post to come). This is a pair where I’m not entirely sure if I love them, now that they’re done, but they are certainly soft and comfortable. And then, an intriguing parcel…

Finished project – Freedom and cables

Quickest of quick FO posts, but I have now found the right pompom* for my raspberry cabled hat, and I LOVE IT. Those cables and the fold-up brim make this hat super-warm and cosy. And this yarn has a touch of silk luxe, which does no harm whatsoever. Better photos (of the striped version too)…

Once upon a sock in Feb 18 – flowers and hat

Whoops! I was all set to post on schedule yesterday, and then (believe it or not) I got distracted by work and before I realised it it was too late for me to photograph my first finished sock from my current pair. Anyway, sorry for being a day late, but look! My first Borage sock…

January warms

Hello hello! Gosh, January is kind of bleak, isn’t it? We live just south of London and have mostly had the drizzly cold grey end of the weather rather than the apocalyptic snow I know lots of you have faced, but that’s been bad enough. The very cold but clear days are glorious, while the…

Once upon a sock in Jan 18 – plans plans plans

Hello sock fans (sockettes?). I would love to show you some exciting sock progress today. However what with my flurry of recent finished projects I don’t actually have any new socks on the go just yet (the Twisted Soul socks are the only ones on the needles, but they haven’t changed since the end of…
